Vikings partners to view minicamp

BY SEAN JENSEN
Pioneer Press

The Vikings ownership partners are scheduled to meet this weekend but aren't planning to discuss the player personnel executive position, a team official said Monday.

"They're expected to be here for internal meetings" and to watch the team's minicamp this weekend, said Lester Bagley, Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development. "It has nothing to do with the player personnel situation."

Last Wednesday, the Vikings fired Fran Foley, the vice president of player personnel for less than three months.

Potential candidates to replace Foley include Jacksonville pro personnel director Charlie Bailey; Ron Hill, the former vice president of player personnel for the Atlanta Falcons; Bill Kuharich, the Kansas City Chiefs' vice president of player personnel; and former Miami Dolphins general manager Rick Spielman.

Meanwhile, the team's scouts have contracts that expire at the end of the month.

The ownership meeting, Bagley said, is tentative as Zygi Wilf continues to pursue a new stadium deal.

Smith update: Former Vikings running back Onterrio Smith is expected to sign a contract with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers this week. The Blue Bombers hold Smith's Canadian Football League rights. The league's season begins June 2.

Smith has been informed by the NFL that he will not be reinstated next month when his one-year suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy ends. But his agent Doug Hendrickson said last week that Smith could be NFL-eligible in October. That is when the CFL regular season ends.

Blue Bombers general manager Brendan Taman said Monday he spoke to Hendrickson and Smith.

"(It's) looking positive he could sign by the end of the week," Taman said of Smith.

Briefly: The Vikings' rookie salary pool has been set at $3.7 million, the 21st largest in the league.

Tue, 9 May 2006 06:28:55 -0700

Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings ownership partners are scheduled to meet this weekend, but they won't be discussing the position vacated with the termination of Fran Foley. "They're expected to be here for internal meetings" and to watch the team's minicamp this weekend, said Lester Bagley, Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development. "It has nothing to do with the player personnel situation." Potential candidates to replace Foley include Jacksonville Jaguars pro personnel director Charlie Bailey; Ron Hill, the former vice president of player personnel for the Atlanta Falcons; Bill Kuharich, the Kansas City Chiefs' vice president of player personnel; and former Miami Dolphins general manager Rick Spielman.

I will say this again, the last I heard reported, was that Studwell didn't want the job. He likes the scouting!

This might be propaganda bs????

They might just be adding his name to the mix. I would like to hear what Studwell has to say about this.

Singersp, any articles with Studwell's comments in it???? Anywhere??

I'll have to do a search, but you are correct, I don't think he wants the job because it will take him away from scouting.

And I concur. Like I've said before, "Let Scott do what Scott does best."

Here's what I found in our threads;


Studwell and Jeff Robinson, the coordinator of pro personnel, are the in-house candidates to replace Foley, but Studwell is believed to be satisfied in his current job and wants to continue to travel and scout players.

Vikings ready to dismiss Foley (http://www.purplepride.org/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=22194&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=scott+studwell&start=75)

That's the same one I remember reading as well. I highlighted it bold in the article, when I posted it.

I hope it is Studwell, but if he really does not want it then Spielman woul.d be a good choice IMO.
